The current mayor of Northport — whose name, I see, is “Harvey Fretwell” — has these billboards up trumpeting getting a Lowe’s store in the city. It basically looks like an endorsement, a big picture of a guy who I guess is Fretwell (I honestly pay no attention to Northport politics even though I live there) standing in front of the store with the sign very prominent. Lowe’s is apparently none too happy about this and Corporate has asked him to take the boards down. He says he will. After the election.
I was actually thinking of calling Lowe’s myself and asking about this, because it seemed really weird. But now I guess I don’t have to.
